Celebrate Mother Earth with a free “Love the Earth” SVG cut file! You can use this design with your electronic cutting machine to make all kinds of projects perfect for Earth Day. This post main contain affiliate links, which help to support this site at no extra cost to you.
Today I am really excited to share a new free SVG cut file design with you all plus a whole collection of amazing designs from some of my design friends! This month our little SVG group decided to make a collection of cut files in honor of Earth Day! Make sure you catch all of the awesome designs at the end of this post.
I created this “love the earth” design that depicts the globe as the center of a flower. I have really been digging a 70’s aesthetic lately, and I was trying to channel my inner hippie with this design.
There are lots of different ways to use this design! I even used the cut file to create some watercolor art! Check out how I did that below.
How to Create Watercolor Art using an SVG Cut File
I wanted to try to create a watercolor version of this design, and so I decided to try something new! I have been thinking of a project like this for a while now, and I was really happy with how it turned out!
You can use this simple technique to turn any cut file you have into a piece of watercolor art! You can watch the video below or keep scrolling for written instructions.
- Open up your cut file in your cutting machine software.
- Put a pencil into your cutting machine using a pen adapter, place a piece of watercolor paper onto your cutting mat, and send the design to your machine to sketch. I used a mechanical pencil because it fit better in my pen holder. (If you are new to sketching, I have a beginner’s guide to sketching with your Silhouette here. If you are a Cricut user, check out Jen Goode’s guide to drawing with your Cricut here.)
- After your design is sketched out on your watercolor paper, use a small round brush to cover the areas you want to paint with a thin layer of water. Then add color into the washes. I like to let similar colors mix and swirl.
- I finished off the text part of my design using a brush tip marker for a more solid look.
- After the watercolor has dried, your piece is ready to frame, hang, and enjoy!
